Spiced Chocolate Energy Balls

I love love love having these as a snack at work at the moment. They're a variation of my previous chocolate energy balls (see recipe here) but with some additional ingredients like cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. This makes them taste like a chai spiced chocolate cookie (yum!) and they also contain lots of mineral rich seeds and of course lots of cacao powder. I made these last week when I was home sick and served them with a big cup of turmeric tea (recipe coming soon!) and a green drink. If that doesn't make you feel better I don't know what will :)

Spiced Chocolate Energy Balls

About 15-18 depending on size

15 fresh/soft dates (use less if using bid dates like medjools)
1/4 cup (1/2 dl) rolled oats
1/2 cup (1 dl) sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup (1/2 dl) unhulled sesame seeds
1/4 cup (1/2 dl) raw coconut chips or grated coconut
1/2 cup (1 dl) raw cacao powder or regular cocoa
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamon
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 tsp virgin coconut oil
Pinch of salt

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough is formed. Shape into balls and enjoy! Store in the fridge or freezer.
